We are finally taking the plunge, though not we hope literally.
A friend and I are cycling the Lake Biwa circuit.
We both live in Kyoto, so will meet at Heian Shrine, say a quick prayer to the Cycling Gods - and then head up and over Sanjo into Otsu.
The plan is to head counter-clockwise, so we will head south from Otsu down to the bottom of the lake. Then we will head north towards Seta, Hikone, and Nagahama.
We will crash in a business hotel for the night, then start early on Day Two.
Cycling Gods willing, we will make it back to Kyoto by Sunday dinner, having cycled the entire 200+ km circuit of Mother Biwa.
